Man Utd vs Man City: Solskjaer Reveals How his Players will Approach EPL Derby

Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has disclosed that his players will approach Sunday’s Premier League derby against Manchester City at Old Trafford by controlling their emotions during the encounter.

Solskjaer’s side head to the game after defeating Derby County 3-0 in the FA Cup on Thursday.

Man United and Man City have beaten each other this season in the Premier League and the Carabao Cup.

“When you are at home, you have to open up against a team like Man City, and they will exploit that if you are not 100 percent,” Solskjaer said at his pre-match press conference as quoted by the club’s official website.

“When playing at home at times, you want to show your fans that you can beat your opponent.

“Then you open up too many spaces, and that is what we did for 10, 15 or 20 minutes, whatever we did after they scored a goal through Bernardo Silva.

“Before then, it was not a problem before Bernardo scored in the top corner. So that was not an issue until our heads went for a little while, so we have to control our emotions more.

“And we have learned, so that’s an experience that we will bring into this game,”

The kick-off time for the match is 5:30 pm.
